I hadn't listened to this for about 10 years until recently, but it's been on my car stereo almost constantly for 2 weeks now. Some of it's a bit "Rush by numbers", but no track is less then good. I can even sit through the slightly tedious whiteboy funk of "Scars", knowing that the title track "Presto" is up next - if there is any song that will make me crash and burn, this is the… Read more
